Several people are feared dead after a 21-seater mini-bus on Tuesday morning rolled down Thura River bridge in Kamugu Village, Mbeere North in Embu County.
Area police boss Kivinda Kilonzo said the accident occurred after the vehicle ran out of fuel while climbing the steep bridge.
“The driver sent the conductor to buy fuel from a nearby filling station. Upon returning with the fuel and igniting the engine, the vehicle rolled back and plunged into the river. We suspect several passengers died in the accident,” said Kilonzo.
The mini-bus, which belongs to KETNNO Sacco, was headed to Siakago Town from Gangara area.
Police suspect the vehicle was overloaded during the accident.
